After that they have a couple of days off and guys may start to come back from injury. Thanks Brandon. Keep working. Maybe you can get back up at some point.

So, what is the point of doing that – and more importantly, who’s spot does he take? Reid? Mazzaro? They both have performed well. Plus, Gomez will soon be back…..

IMHO, he needs to earn whatever role he would have on the MLB team…not just given to him.

Try him in the pen for middle innings. I don’t think you can trade him at this value and I don’t think you can just DFA him. And unfortunately I see nothing in his box scores that tell me he deserves a shot in the rotation for the time being.

Will he accept an assignment to minors if not?
